5 REASONS NEVER TO LEAVE HOME WITHOUT YOUR SUNGLASSES

You slather on SPF 50 on your skin to shield from the sun. But what about your naked eyes? The simple and stylish accessory called sunglasses can protect your eyes from a host of conditions caused by ultraviolet rays:
1. Skin Cancer
Up to 10% of all skin cancers are found on the eyelid.

2. Cataracts
The World Health Organization reports that worldwide, approximately 900,000 people are blind because of cataracts-cloudiness in the lens of the eye-triggered by UV exposure.

3.Macular Degeneration
Over time UV light may play a role in damaging the macula lutea (an area of the eye with millions of light-sensing cells, which allow us to see fine details clearly), potentially leading to blurriness and vision loss.

4.Pterygium
This abnormal growth of tissue, also called surfer's eye, may progress slowly from either corner or across the white part of the eye, possibly leading to inflammation or disturbance of vision.

5.Photokeratitis
Essentially a sunburn of the eye, it's temporary but can be painful,causing blurred vision,light sensitivity, and the sensation of having sand in your eyes.

Get good protection; a 5$ pair of sunglasses for sale on the corner can do more harm than
good! Our pupils dilate behind dark lenses, meaning cheap shades will actually let more damaging rays into your eyes than if you weren't wearing any sunglasses at all. Axxis will fit you with a stylish pair that's designed to block 99 to 100 % of UVA and UVB light.
